I am now highly curious as to why Cosmetic Surgeons aren't interested in
this field. There's obviously interest, because I never even thought of the
idea until reading Wired's article. There's obviously things surgeons can
do that tattoo parlors can't. And there's no obvious reason why slipping
silicone into a boob is somehow acceptable while slipping magnets into a
fingertip is weird. Plus there's all kinds of research opportunities, and a
chance for me to respect them.
